BBC news reporting that the UK flagged 7409 grt, 129m cargo vessel "Lysblink Seaways" is aground near Kilchoan. Coastguard tug Herakles is on its way to assist but looking at her present position in the Pentland Firth, it's likely to be the early hours of tomorrow before she's on-scene.

All on board are said to be safe and no reports of pollution so far.

Looks like Briggs Marine have the contract for salvage. FORTH JOUSTER en route from Mallaig and arriving late afternoon today with the KINGDOM OF FIFE expected early hours of the morning.

Herakles has returned to Kirkwall, presumably not needed now that the Kingdom of Fife and Forth Jouster are on scene.
